Get to know Tyson Farmer

Hi, my name is Tyson Farmer and I'm a guitar teacher and professional musician who teaches lessons to all kinds of students from different area codes. 
I teach a wide variety of guitar and other instrument styles to students age 10 and up, including rock, jazz, metal, classical, country, 80s rock, classic rock, funk, and many more. I know most people who take music lessons are there for fun and to learn something new and rewarding. So I start by teaching my students the important concepts they need to get them playing quickly- by using the music that THEY are familiar with, like to listen to, and want to play- no "On Top Of Old Smokey" or boring exercises here - I use the music they like! I work at each student's pace and adjust my teaching style to their individual way of thinking. 
I can teach anyone from the absolute "square one" beginner who has never played a guitar or other instrument before, to a musician of any skill level who wants to take it to the next level or get back on track with their playing. I can provide what I like to call a "Fun Lessons Track", where the main goal is to provide a student of any age (younger teenagers to grown adults) with a new, personally rewarding, and fun hobby that they can be proud of. I can also help with specific short or long term goals- preparing any student for a musical "Career Track", college music major placement or auditions, high school senior projects, skills for playing in a school jazz or rock band program or church praise and worship group, tutoring for better grades in music theory class (high school or college level), and much more. 
I believe strongly in shopping around for the right service or product, and I am confident about my teaching abilities, so I offer a free 30 minute, one-on-one, no obligations trial lesson to anyone who asks.
My main goal in all cases is to work with a student's specific musical and instrumental goals if they have any, or to provide the needed lesson plan and walk them through the learning process step by step if they have no idea where to start.
